Bronze Star Medal Citation (posthumous)

Staff Sergeant Frank J Tomasiewicz, 37034080, Medical Department, United States Army, for heroic service in connection with military operations against an enemy of the United States at Sarreinsming, France on 10 December 1944. When the Second Battalion, 134th Infantry, was given the mission of establishing a bridgehead over the Saar River, the only route of crossing was an old railroad bridge then subjected to heavy enemy fire of all types. The troops made the crossing under cover of darkness, after which, Sergeant Tomasiewicz, a medical section leader, went forward and despite the heavy enemy fire, established routes for evacuation of the wounded. He remained forward, without regard for personal safety, carrying back litter cases and bringing up medical supplies. While so engaged, he was killed by an enemy artillery shell. Sergeant Tomasiewicz' intrepidity, initiative and devotion to duty, reflect credit upon his character as a soldier. Entered military service from Nebraska.
